Simply perfection
7 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

You have not understood life properly until you have added this film to your psyche.

Pinter I plan to dig you up and put you in my living room, you sir are a God. It is amazing that this work has not been recognised as one of the finest pieces of acting and writing ever achieved on-screen.

All of the characters are excellently cast, and with Pinter himself at the helm it is perfection. McCann (Colin Blakely) is the devil and Goldberg (Pinter) is the messanger, the angel and the mercy he is all-inspiring and all-receding to the point of making sense.

My greatest film of all time, knocking "Napoleon" (Abel Gance) off the top-spot. Why did you have to die?!?!?! Gives me something to look forward to when I die
